What To Expect as a New IFM Donor
Your Gift Is Tax Deductible:
IFM is a tax exempt organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Contributions to IFM missionaries or projects are qualified for Federal and, in some cases, State income-tax deductions, as allowed by law, unless marked "Not Tax-Deductible."
Personal gifts to missionaries, such as for Christmas, birthdays or anniversaries are designated as "Not Tax-Deductible" and may not be used as an itemized deduction for tax purposes.
Upon receipt of your donation, the funds will be applied to your specified missionary or project account. IFM will then send you a receipt by mail. Each receipt summarizes your year-to date giving. The receipt will meet all IRS requirements for substantiating your deduction for support and ministry gifts.
In order to process any future donations more efficiently, you will be assigned a
Donor ID. This number is printed at the top of each receipt, as well as on tear-off return slip. Including the return slip with your next gift, if by mail, insures proper processing of the funds. Be sure to make any changes in designations or updates to your address and phone number on the slip. If you use another method to make your next gift, be sure to provide your Donor ID.
Annual itemized summaries for your donations are available upon request.
